My kodak m763 quit working and i was wondering if i took it apart if i could fix it ...it may have gotten too damp in the rain, but the next day it turned on fine for viewing, then the lens would not extend out all the way out or go back in and it would turn itself off. We tried to help the lens come out, but wouldn't work and then tried to help it go back in and now its stuck and won't even try. Can i take it apart (with the right tools)...already tried everything and know i need a torx tool. d

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.

I have the exact same problem with MY HP 945 camera! It had horizontal lines through it in several of the shots. I thought at first it was the memory card, but after using that same card in another (older but still working HP) camera, and swapped in/ ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

Hi emery,I guess the batteries are drained out in the camera.So just take out the memory card if u r using any.....and then try replacing the batteries.Turn ON the camera only with the batteries in.Check if its working fine.....If yes then use a diff ...

Camera exposed to rain. Battery immediately removed and camera dried but it won't power up now. No obvious sign of water damage inside.

You have two ways to handle that.First: (Just saying- if there is a water ''damage'' YOU CAN'T SEE IT.) So if you think you are professional in theese stuff you can take a screwdriver, open the camera and clean its parts.Secon ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7 Digital Camera

I believe i have damaged the a/v out mini usb port, i plugged in a friends cable and now my Nikon specific cable won't seat - the camera does not try to download when powered on. Is this repairable, how, is it worth it? Who would have thought a competitors cable of the same design would damage internal parts? Thanks

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?

Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras

Just got a coolpix L24 , previously had coolpix 4100, Was wondering if the old computer disc setup would still work on the new L24, probably not i would guess. I have many pictures on the computer I want to save from the old 4100 setup. Was just wondering about compatability?

Sure, the old software will continue to work just fine. If you want to update it, you can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from\012\012\012http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e

You cannot replace the lens assembly. This must be done by a Sony repair service center. You cannot "polish" the lens without completely ruining it. Replacement is going to be expensive. Get an estimate and then decide if it's worth it. ... Sony Cybershot DSCW370 Digital Camera

The Sony Cyber-shot acts as if the battery is dead. Purchased new battery this afternoon. The camera worked fine for about a hour. I was turning the power on and then off frequently taking pictures at Bible School. The camera would turn on and then after turning it off would not power back on.

This is a known issue with Cybershot that even when its power OFF it still drains battery life, and Sony is awarer of this problem so better take it to a service center near you and have it check since you already use a new set of battery for this un ... Sony Digital Cameras

The outer lense is smashed badly. I would like to know whether warranty covers this type of damage and if not how much would it likely cost to replace. As far as I know the lenses inside are fine. Thks.

Hi Guys, I have a D200 with a cracked LCD (topplate) and am wondering whether buying a s/h body would be cheaper than getting it repaired. I don't know what's involved in replacing the topplate so I would appreciate some ideas on costs/time. The camera works fine otherwise. I'm based in North East, UK.

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!

I have a Moultrie D-40 with problems. It has a bad display. It also will power up, but power off almost immediately. I assume that is a main board problem. Is there a schmatic available? Can one order the parts from Moultrie? Any idea of prices? If not, is there anywhere else one can get parts? I assume someone makes the parts for them. I'm wondering if there is a part number on the circuit boards. I would think the display would be a common item. I already swapped it out so know it's bad. OR, i
